Sheena Easton – Prisoner lyrics

Time has come to say goodbye to broken memories
Locked inside like prisoners, in a place that no one sees

Chorus:
I'm a prisoner, go on and lock myself away
Just a prisoner, lonely, lonely
I'm a prisoner, just when you think love will stay
It walks right out on you, out on you (oooh)

Stayed up late with a friend of mine, sodden comfort till dawn
Talked about the pain of love, should've known from the start you were wrong

Chorus

The sky is grey, it's rainin', like the storm in my heart
There ain't no use explainin', 'cause I'm leavin', leavin', leavin', gone

[Instrumental]

Tired blood runs through my veins, but I can't get no sleep
Locked my heart in these prison walls, this place I got to leave

Chorus repeats 2x

(I'm a prisoner) Oh, you gotta let me go
(Just a prisoner) Just can't take no more (lonely, lonely)
(I'm a prisoner) Oh, you gotta let me leave
(Walks right out on you) Out on you

Chorus to fade
